The Swedish method of body massage was developed by Henreich Ling in the 19th century to treat both physical and mental ‘dis-ease’. Derived from Chinese, Egyptian, Greek and Roman techniques, it involves several different strokes that work the skin, muscle, circulation, lymphatic and nervous systems.
Deep tissue massage, uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, and is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscles and fascia. It is used to release chronic muscle tension or knots (adhesions).
